The soup is from my Sunday Soup Extravaganza. Fresh tomatoes from the Farmer's Market simmered with some onions, then a little chicken stock, then a huge handful of fresh basil from outside, some salt, and a good long puree in the food processor. It was very refreshing and a great way to get my vegetables on without fooling with a salad.
The pasta was just some whole wheat fusilli mixed with some feta, fresh basil, tomatoes and grilled eggplant and zucchini. The leftovers will make a good cold pasta salad for lunch tomorrow.
The salmon was surprisingly good. I've probably whined about fish before. I'm just not a fan. I make salmon because Pootie loves it, but I usually just eat what I have to of it and think "meh" after the first bite. Not so, tonight! I took FOUR whole bites and thought "hmmm! not bad!" Then the fifth bite I was back to "meh". But Phillip raved about it until he finished his, being a salmon-lover and all. So I guess it was pretty good salmon. No thanks to my prep. All I did was salt and pepper it, drizzle it with olive oil, and put it on a foil lined pan on the grill. (I need to do with that what Rachel Ray did with Extra Virgin Olive Oil - EVOO). FLPOG. Doesn't have the same ring, does it? Maybe that's why she's famous and I'm not.
So there's dinner. And a new shirt.
